This must have been our tenth stay at the Montague and like always, it did not disappoint. It’s hard to accurately convey how charming both the hotel and the staff are, the former as welcoming as the latter. Staying at the Montague is not just a hotel stay, it’s an experience that you can only fully appreciate by spending a few days in this oasis of calm in Bloomsbury. The hotel itself is beautiful with tastefully decorated bedrooms and inviting common areas but the real heart of the Montague is it’s exceptional staff - professional, welcoming, attentive and just genuinely lovely people. The location is perfectly served with public transport but to be honest the hotel is within walking distance of the areas we tend to visit when in London- Seven Dials, Covent Garden, Bond Street, Oxford Street etc. It’s proximity to the British Museum is also a huge plus. The food and beverage offerings across the hotel are superb. The Afternoon Tea is undoubtedly one of the best I have had (especially the scones!) and you have to sample Bea Tollman’s shortbread, a truly delicious sweet treat. We can’t wait to return soon to this absolute gem of a hotel. The thought of enjoying a cold glass of champagne on the terrace overlooking the gardens after a busy day of sightseeing and shopping in London has kept me going during the numerous lockdowns!!

Hotel's Favorite
We stayed at The Montague on the The Gardens a few years ago and thought as London would be quiet at the moment with the lack of foreign tourists, it would be perfect to visit for a couple of nights over my husband's 60th birthday. We were not disappointed! For a central London hotel, the level of friendly and personal service at The Montague is quite exceptional. Every staff member we met, was friendly and professional. Everyone was wonderful but we had particularly excellent service from Mustafa, the Head Concierge. As I was recovering from a recent knee replacement, so had reduced mobility, arrangements for visiting sites were a little more complicated than usual but Mustafa arranged all that we needed with genuine warm care and attention. He booked us Fasttrack tickets for Madame Tussauds and explained the best way to access The British Museum. He even reminded us when it was time for us to book an Uber to get to where we were going (definitely the best way to get around London!). He booked dinner for us at a delightful French bistro (Mon Plassir, don't miss it!) and even checked on our progress as we walked to the restaurant very slowly (the knee). He then went on ahead to confirm our arrival with the restaurant, which resulted in two glasses of champagne awaiting us! Service beyond the call of duty! We dined at the hotel on the night of my husband.s birthday and received superb service and attention from Luke. He really looked after us and made the occassion feel very special indeed. Cocktails in the Leopard Bar are also a must do - the menu is very different with some interesting concoctions all beautifully served. Other staff members worth mentioning (and I know I shall forget someone) were Claudia and Beth on Reception, Levante on the Concierge desk, the highly amusing Everett who just doesn't stop clocking up the miles around the hotel in his efforts to check on everything, Arjeta, Adrienne, Pietro, Paulos, Lucia, Noel.... We had booked a Deluxe King Room which was large for a London Hotel room with all sorts of added extras not always found in hotel rooms such as delicious home made biscuits, a coffee machine and a generous amount of "pods", kettle, teapot, packaged biscuits, hot chocolate, Bose speaker, robes and slippers and the all important fresh milk in the fridge (only fellow tea drinkers will appreciate how imperative fresh milk is to a good cup of tea!). I was, however disappointed in the small size of the bathroom compared to the large room, I found it pokey and awkward but....it is central London, easily forgotten in the quiet area of Bloomsbury... Covid restrictions were evident of course as is the way of the world at the moment... I was disappointed that turn down service wasn't able to happen because of it. Breakfast was, if I must say, a tad uninspired compared to how wonderful everything else was, with a small (although perfectly adequate) breakfast buffet. Eggs, thankfully were cooked to order and we had delicious omelettes on the second morning. Egg choices aside, it did, however feel rather samey each morning. Personally I would have wanted more fresh fruit. I even think under current climes, an a la carte breakfast menu where everything could be made to order perhaps particularly while there are lower guest levels during the week would be more appealing. It would also give it more of a non repetitive feel for guests that are staying a few nights... However, this may be a moot point as things hopefully open up more and the usual breakfast service returns. High tea was glorious so don't miss it - the vanilla cheesecake and bakewell tart particularly delightful but the sandwiches were outstanding too! We enjoyed burgers too one lunch time on the terrace - really delicious! Now is the perfect time to visit London folks before the foreign tourists return so don't delay. Weekdays are particularly quiet and you will have the notoriously usually crowded London sites to yourselves. Don't hesitate to book The Montague, you won't be disappointed. I'm sure, like us you will arrive as guests and leave as friends!

From the moment we arrived we were treated as returning guests but this is our first visit. Beth on reception was delightful, welcoming but totally professional. Although arriving before check in we were informed that our room was ready no. 46. However before going to our room, Levente, a charming concierge offered to show us around this 101 room hotel. Immediately we were wowed with what we saw, an elegant dining room, the garden conservatory over looking the garden, the unique Leapord bar and a beach club bar (weather permitting) but in winter its changed into a winter ski lodge! Whilst walking down the short corridor we were admiring the wallpaper but it wasn't wallpaper at all but upholstered, no wonder there was so little noise. Our room was just lovely ( the wife's words) and again the walls were upholstered, a queen size bed and a large bathroom. All the linen, towels, slippers and robes were all monogrammed, very tasteful. We had booked to go out for dinner but breakfast was excellent with the staff looking after us so well. To give you an idea of how impressed we were, we are looking to come for a 2 night stay, midweek in mid December and will most certainly book for dinner.

We stayed for one night at the Bedford Suite at the Montague. The suite was lovely, which a huge amount of space and great artwork. The beach bar pop up was fun and we got great service from Sonia. However, the rest of the hotel was rather rundown and not of the standard of the rest of the Red Carnation group we have stayed at. The morning service was poor. They forgot to collect our breakfast order from the door and also forgot the paper we ordered. The phone lines were down, so we had to ring through externally to sort it out. Whilst they did deliver breakfast, it was cold and congealed, which left us disappointed. They did give us a discount in compensation and Arjeta was very helpful in this respect and very friendly.
